Downtown Library

The UCF Libraries are excited to be a part of the UCF Downtown community, and we want to share our plans with students and faculty as we all begin this new venture. The Downtown Library will open in August 2019, in time for the Fall 2019 semester.

The library space on the 2nd floor of the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons will house a collection of print materials, provide access to all of UCF Libraries’ online resources, and have a welcoming study atmosphere. We’re striving to provide a seamless experience, maintaining the same level of service and the resources our users are accustomed to on the main campus. For a full list of the Libraries’ services, see our web page:

Although our Subject Librarians will remain based at the main campus, they will travel downtown to meet with faculty and students as needed.  In addition to the Subject Librarians, UCF and Valencia librarians and staff will be available to assist users in the Downtown Library.  Quick online and telephone support is also provided by UCF’s Ask Us service.

Librarians serving the UCF Downtown community include:

  • Corinne Bishop (Subject Librarian for School of Public Administration, Doctoral Program in Public Affairs)
  • Richard Harrison (Subject Librarian for Department of Communication)
  • Athena Hoeppner (Subject Librarian for Department of Games and Interactive Media)
  • Rich Gause (Subject Librarian for Department of Legal Studies)
  • Renee Montgomery (Subject Librarian for Department of Health Management and Informatics)
  • Rachel Mulvihill (Head, Downtown Library)


The Downtown Library is a branch of the UCF Libraries and will offer the following services at this location:

Monday-Thursday 8:00am-9:00pm
